Anna Schaffelhuber produced a superb downhill performance at the World Para Alpine Skiing World Cup Finals in Pyeongchang today to seal the overall World Cup title.

It came in a competition doubling as a test event for next year's Winter Paralympic Games at the South Korean resort.

Schaffelhuber, a five-time Paralympic gold medal winner at Sochi 2014, sped down the downhill sitting course in 1min 31.48sec.

Anna-Lena Forster finished second in 1:35.24 to complete a German 1-2. 

Momoka Muraoka of Japan took the final place on the podium a further 0.72 back.

"I think I had pretty good turns in this race today," said Schaffelhuber, who won three world titles, including the downhill, in January. 

"I had two parts that were not that good where the line was not that perfect, but all in all I’m happy with it."

Austrian Markus Salcher also gained an overall World Cup-clinching victory in the men's standing class.

The 25-year-old world champion clocked 1:28.55 to triumph by 0.33 over Canadian Alexis Guimond.

Team-mate Chrisophe Schneider took bronze.

"It's cool to win the test event here because next year it's the Paralympic Games," said Salcher. 

"It’s a cool track, I felt pretty comfortable here, pretty well here, and I hope that I can show it again next year."

Canada did enjoy success of their own, however, as Mac Marcoux continued his dominant form to clinch the visually impaired crown for a third successive season.

He and guide Jack Leitch crossed the line in 1:26.53 to win by 0.32 over Italy’s Giacoma Bertagnolli, guided by Fabrizio Casal.

Slovakia’s Miroslav Haraus, guided by Maros Hudik, took third in 1:28.46.

Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and guide Natalia Subrtova won the corresponding women's event in 1:31.60.

British world champion Millie Knight, guided by Brett Wild, finished second in 1:32.37 and duly took the overall World Cup title.

Australia’s Melissa Perrine, guided by Andrew Bor, finished third in 1:37.60.

France’s Marie Bochet showed she is back to her blistering best with a convincing win in the women’s standing. 

The 23-year-old finished 2.45 seconds ahead of Canada’s overall World Cup winner Alana Ramsay in 1:33.88.

Dutch star Anna Jochemsen placed third in 1:39.13.

On a day in which six different countries won gold medals, Takai Morii claimed a Japanese win in the men's sitting class.

His time of 1:26.27 saw him finish 0.35 in front of Austria's Roman Rabl and team-mate Akira Kano crossed in 1:27.35 for bronze.
